More than half the time spent by a small town taxi driver on shift is waiting, rather than driving. Between fares, there is plenty of opportunity to park up and to record what is seen. Most of the photographs on this web site have been taken whilst on shift and with a mobile phone.
On @theabingdontaxi, all the Header photographs are changed monthly. On this web site, all of the page header photographs are previous Twitter monthly Headers and the Home page header always shows the current Twitter monthly Header, as does @theabingdontaxi Soundcloud account.
Here you can see all the previous monthly Header photographs.
